Natural Language Processing

Group Lead of the Natural Language Processing group. We teach computers to understand and generate natural language.


Other activities: 

  • Site-leader of the H2020 project SMOOTH (GDPR compliance for micro-enterprises)
  • Management Committee member of the COST action Multi3Generation
  • Member of the steering committee of ICGI (Grammatical Inference)
  • Coordinator and teacher for the NLP module at CentraleSupelec (2020 edition here)

My own background is in theoretical computer science & algorithmics, with applications to genetic and natural language sequences. In addition to my research interest in statistical and combinatorial methods for analysing text, I like applying them to explore data-sets and see what they tell us about the world.

I joined the centre (at what was at the time Xerox Research) in 2011. My PhD is from the INRIA centre in Rennes, France, and before that I was at FaMAF, (National University of Córdoba, Argentina). I grew up in Germany and spent some years in Brazil. You can find my academic genealogy on the Mathematics Genealogy Project
